What to Wear on a First Date

First dates are all about making lasting and meaningful impressions. Impress your date and look your best while still staying true to yourself.

First dates are fun but can also be nerve wracking. One of the most stressful parts is figuring out what in the world you might want to wear. First dates are a launching pad for first impressions. Even if you have known the person for a while, the setting and atmosphere of calling it a “date” make room for getting to know one another in a totally different light than before. And while you want to make a good lasting impression, it is also important to remember to stay comfortable!

Your initial date with a person should be stress-free. It should be about comfortably getting to know one another, opening up, and learning about one another. While what you wear on your first date will depend on where your first date happens to be, make sure to be yourself! You don’t want to give off the wrong impression. But at the same time, a first date allows you to reinvent yourself a bit so don’t be afraid to have fun!

If you’re going out for a casual coffee or lunch date, then a glammed up casual outfit will work best. Since the locale is more laid back, you can wear your favorite day-to-day outfit and add some bold accessories to dress it up a little for the occasion. Feel free to dress up a casual v-neck tee with a flowy skirt and a chiffon scarf. You can also wear it with a printed or colored skinny jean, an eye-catching statement necklace and flats. This way, you’ll look great wearing something comfortable that shows off your personal style, and you’ll still look glamorous.

But what if you’re going out to a fancy dinner, or perhaps to a club or some other event? A little black dress goes a long way for just these sorts of occasions. They can be paired with a unique studded clutch or beaded coinpurse along with a full set of cocktail jewelry. You can dress up this look with your accessories and shoes, though try to pick things a little more on the comfier side because you won’t want to divert your attention from your date to your aching feet!

While you may want to pull out all the stops for a first date and use every trick in the book, the most important thing you should remember is to make sure you’re comfortable. Sure, you want to look great, and you totally can! But first dates are about getting to know one another in a more personal setting and you want to be able to devote your attention to your date, not worried that your dress will ride up or that your heels are killing you.

Valentine’s Day Gifts For Her

Valentine’s Day is the last holiday of the winter season and warms us up with romance. Gift giving is a little more special, personal and demands for a little more romantic sentiment this time of year. But sometimes romance doesn’t have to be super fancy but can be friendly and flirty too. Whether you’re looking to get a gift for her, a new significant other or for a special someone you’ve been with for a long time, a fun gift is just as romantic and still suits the occasion. Flowers are a staple of Valentine’s Day but flowers are seeing some major attention in fashion right now. This pattern is one of the most sought after prints in clothing and accessories.

Floral prints are the epitome of romantic. This print can be found in just about anything, from tops, blouses, pants to every accessory imaginable.
